The Formula 1 season is getting closer and closer to its end and, with the end of the year, the duo made up of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas will come to an end , which during these last five years has brought great joy to the fans of Mercedes. In one of the last press conferences, the Englishman praised his current partner and the comment may have been addressed to some of his former colleagues.
The highest category of motorsport will have a weekend of rest for the drivers, who begin to do numbers and calculations about the remainder of the season. One of those who will be happy with the result of the last weekend was the British Mercedes driver , who claimed another victory, the 100th of his career.
Lewis Hamilton knows that although he has now strayed a bit from Max Verstappen, the priority must be to find victory in the Constructors’ Championship. There they maintain the leadership thanks to the points that both he and Valtteri Bottas added, who already announced that he will leave the team at the end of the season, something that has made Lewis speak.
“For the first time, I had a teammate who I really communicated with. It had never happened before with other pilots. It is unique. And as a human being, it’s fantastic, ” said the Formula 1 seven-time champion in an interview with Sky Italia.
Although clearly the pair between the Finn and the English has paid off at Mercedes, the relationship between the two drivers does not seem as good as the English comment. But the reality is that Bottas has almost always respected the team’s priorities and has even managed to win a few Grands Prix over the years, so the comparison with Rosberg leaves the Nordic much better.
The next Formula 1 races
This weekend, both Lewis Hamilton and the 19 drivers on the grid will have a few days off, so they can take the opportunity to rest and start preparing for the Prizes that are coming up. The first of them is that of Turkey, which will be held on Sunday, October 10.
After the GP in Istanbul, on the weekend of the 22nd to the 24th they will have the United States GP to finally land, at the beginning of November, in Mexico City, where a new edition of the Mexican Grand Prix will be held.
